Micro-Steps Victory!

Wrote the scenes I’d assigned myself to write and am feeling victorious just because they exist.

I’m thinking about Ann Patchett and how she says our beautiful ideas are like butterflies, and when we write them down, we pin the butterflies to a board. BUT she says an imperfect but written piece is better than perfect and unwritten. One can be shared with others.

I wish that not everything we touched had to die. Annie Dillard says touch it anyway.

I fear I’m misrepresenting these incredible women. The bottom line is: write, create, build, even if the finished product can never match the perfection in your head.
